Due to continuous heavy rainfall causing inundation of vast areas in the Goalpara - Jogighopa region, people from many villages have flocked to the railway embankment to take shelter from the rising flood waters. Large numbers of people along with their essential belongings and cattles have been taking shelter on the railway embankment in the Goalpara - Jogighopa section since the last many days. The railway embankment is the only stable structure offering the protection of a highland to the marooned villagers. In view of this, N.F. Railway authorities have imposed speed restrictions on the Goalpara - Jogighopa route from railway km 25 to km 29. The trains are now being run with restricted speed in this section. The drivers of all trains passing through the section have also been issued instructions to whistle continuously while passing through this stretch where people have taken shelter so that any kind of causalities...

or injuries to the villagers and their cattles can be avoided.
It is to be mentioned that in the wake of recent floods N.F Railway has also attached additional coaches in popular trains for the convenience of people wanting to travel to and from Guwahati due to disruption of road network in various places in Upper Assam and Lower Assam.

The Northeast Frontier Railway Construction Organisation is working to enhance railway connectivity in the state and other areas lying within its zone, besides undertaking some major works that have been recently commissioned.Officials at NFR (Construction) said that the Tetelia-Kamalajari (10 km) section of Tetelia-Byrnihat (21.5 km) new line project has been completed and engine rolling in the stretch was done on March 28.
“Out of the 21.5 km stretch, 19.2 km falls in Assam and 2.3 km falls in Meghalaya. The Tetelia-Kamalajari section has one tunnel of 500-metre length, two major bridges and 24 minor bridges. The section has been planned for commissioning in August this year,” informed an official.

added, “NFR has commissioned new broadgauge line along 11.50 km on the Gauripur-Alamganj section of New Maynaguri-Jogighopa (288.88 km) new line project in the north bank of the Brahmaputra. After completion of track laying, goods train movement was also tried recently.”
He said that two doubling projects, namely New Coochbehar-Gumanihat (29.32 km) and New Coochbehar-Samuktala Road Junction (29.02 km) were completed after CRS inspection on March 27.
Meanwhile, NFR has decided to immediately increase the speed of trains in two sections under Rangiya Division. The sections are North Lakhimpur-Sripani, a distance of almost 82 km, where the speed will be raised from 80 km per hour to 100 km per hour.
In addition, the speed in the section Sripani-Murkongselek, which is a distance of 74 km, will be raised from 75 km per hour to 100 km per hour.
“Increasing of speed has multifarious benefits. It leads to more efficient utilisation of fixed assets like railway tracks which leads to increase in carrying capacity of the track. This means more trains can ply without increasing track length or incurring further financial investment,” mentioned an official.

Jogighopa (JPZ): A new broad gauge (BG) railway line connecting New Mainaguri, Mathabbanga, Chengrabandha and Coochbehar to Jogighopa via Boxirhat, Dhubri, Gauripur and other places has been a long-standing demand of the people in the Jalpaiguri and Coochbehar districts of West Bengal and the Dhubri, Bongaigaon, Goalpara and parts of Kokrajhar districts of Assam, besides the East Garo Hills and West Garo Hills districts of Meghalaya.
Around 80 per cent of the people of these areas belong to the poor strata of the society. There has been no industrial development in the region, mainly due to the lack of adequate infrastructure facilities, including a railway network. However, the demand has been overlooked by the Railway authorities since the past 50 years.

facilities available before Independence have also been discontinued. Before Independence, this part of the country was connected to mainland India through then undivided Bengal (now Bangladesh). Besides a rail link, the region was connected to Kolkata through the Brahmaputra river. Dhubri town was then the biggest inland river port of Assam. The airport at Rupshi was constructed during World War II and the one at Coochbehar was constructed much earlier. But they remain unutilised today.
The joint convener of the New Mainaguri-Jogighopa Railway Demand Committee, Tazmul Hoque said all the transport links had been snapped after Independence, and that the people of the area have been virtually cut off from mainstream national life.
All the districts concerned in Assam, North Bengal and Meghalaya seeking the proposed railway line are rich in forest wealth. Sal, sishu, segun, bonsom, gamari and numerous other varieties of valuable trees grow in abundance in the forests of these areas. Moreover, bamboo, cane, pati bet (a variety of cane used in making mats), medicinal plants and herbs, orchids, resins and other varieties of plants, trees and forest produce are abundantly available in the forests of the region.
The region is also rich in mineral resources. Dolomite, an essential raw material for the production of cement and coal, is available in the two districts concerned of Meghalaya. Dolomite is also available in the Jalpaiguri district of North Bengal.
The proposed railway line from New Mainaguri to Jogighopa and other places covers a distance of 270 km approximately. The earth work for the construction of the rail route is likely to cost much less as compared to other places. This proposed railway line will help optimum utilisation of the Naranarayan Setu over the Brahmaputra river at Jogighopa, which is a road-cum- railway bridge. The total cost for the construction of the proposed line is estimated to be Rs 1,400 crore.
The proposed railway line passing through the districts of West Bengal and Assam bordering Bangladesh, now a friendly country, will be strategically important from the defence point of view too. The demand is justified in view of the fact that the per capita railway in the region is very negligible and much below the national average.
The demand for expansion of the railway network in the region was raised at the conventions at Tufanganj (Coochbehar district) and Bijni (erstwhile Goalpara district) in 1961. The then Northeast Frontier General Manager, late BC Ganguly took some initiative in this regard; but subsequently, the matter was abandoned by the Railway authorities for reasons best known to them.
Recently, the joint convener of the New Mainaguri-New Coochbehar-Dhubri-Jogigopha Railway Extension Demand Committee submitted a memorandum to the Railway Minister of India for the construction of the BG line immediately.

Bilasipara:  In the mass convention held at Bilasipara, leaders of various parties stressed the need to launch a movement to mount pressure on the Union railway ministry to immediately expedite work on the project from Gauripur to Jogighopa.
Work on the project was stopped in May this year owing to non-sanctioning of funds though the railway ministry in its last budget had reportedly sanctioned Rs 145 crore. The fund was not routed to the Northeast Frontier Railway for reasons best known to the ministry, several leaders alleged.

the New Moinaguri-Jogighopa New Railway Line Demand Committee at the Pratima Barua Pandey Memorial Hall in Bilasipara town today.
New Moinaguri is in Bengal’s Jalpaiguri district.
Speaking on the occasion, former Bengal forest minister Ananta Roy, a member of the committee, said the railway department thought that completion of a part of the project from New Cooch Behar to Dhubri would bring an end to their movement. But their movement is still alive and the demand committee will not stop until the rest of the project is completed, Roy said.
Former Bengal legislator Tamser Ali, also a member of the committee, while demanding the railway ministry complete the work immediately, said the former joint-convener of the committee, late Chandi Paul who led this movement, used to say that if people did not come out to the streets to get their demands fulfilled, the government would not do anything. “So now instead of sitting idle, we have to hit the streets and get our demands fulfilled,” Ali added.
Addressing the convention, Dhubri district AGP president Amal Kumar Saha stressed the speedy completion of the railway project and demanded a new express train from Dhubri to Calcutta to be introduced soon.
Leaders of all political parties including the Congress and BJP spoke at the convention and demanded the project to be completed soon.
Earlier, one of the two joint conveners, Tazmul Haque, in his speech, traced the outline of the 17-year movement of the demand committees and said all the political parties have now joined hands and come to one platform with a common demand to complete the project.
Completion of this railway project will not only boost the railway communication of this region but will bring a sea change in the economic condition of the people, Haque added.
The meeting was presided by former Deputy Speaker Giasuddin Ahmed.
Former Bengal legislator Dipak Kumar Sarkar, AGP legislator of North Abhayapuri of Assam, Bhupen Roy, Dhubri district Congress president Sushil Roy, AIUDF leader Abdul Motin, former AGP legislator Prasanta Kumar Barua, Dhubri district BJP president Dipak Kumar Saha and Dhubri district SUCI leader Azahar Hussain addressed the convention.
